Mercedes-AMG Flagship
As most driving enthusiasts know, AMG is the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz. There are AMG versions of virtually every model in the Mercedes lineup, and these special sedans, coupes, convertibles and SUVs offer massive power, great handling and tasteful styling to set them apart from their more common counterparts. But then there’s the AMG GT. There is no lesser version of this gorgeous sport coupe — it is simply the flagship of the Mercedes-AMG line, with perfect sports car dimensions and impressive performance. Competitors to the AMG GT include the Porsche 911, Audi R8, Chevrolet Corvette, BMW M6 and Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. Our test vehicle was the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S, which includes a number of optional extras such as the AMG Carbon Ceramic Braking System, Carbon Fiber Engine Cover, AMG Solarbeam Yellow paint, AMG Dynamic Plus Package and Carbon Fiber Exterior Trim package for a total price of $171,900.
